CHOICE BASED LETTINGS
Drumchapel Housing Co-operative Limited operates a Choice Based system of allocation which allows people who are on our Housing Register to choose the houses that match their housing need for which they wish to be considered. However, in selecting who will be given the offer of a house, the Co-operative will take account of the applicant's household needs.
The Co-operative maintains a lettings database which will provide brief details of all houses which are available to let. The Co-operative will also prepare a property schedule for each void property on the database which will include the following details:
- type of property (e.g. flat, semi-detached, terraced etc.)
- size of property
- type of central heating
- type of windows
- access to gardens
The database and the property schedule will also include closing dates by which applicants must apply for the houses on offer and any restrictions with regard to the use of "priority tickets".
THE HOUSING REGISTER
Drumchapel Housing Co-operative Limited will maintain a database of all persons (aged over 16 years) who wish to be considered for housing. This database will be referred to as the "Housing Register". The Co-operative will have only one Housing Register - there will not be a separate list for existing tenants who are seeking transfer.
The Housing Register will include the name and contact details of the applicant, the minimum size of the house for which they can be considered (based on their household details), the level of priority ticket awarded (if any) and the effective date of registration. Each person on the Register will be given a Registration Number.
All applicants whose details are included on the Housing Register will be eligible to apply for any house offered by the Co-operative, unless their household would overcrowd the property, or their application has been held for any reason.
New Build properties let for the first time will be subject to a Lettings Initiative and will not be offered as part of Choice Based Lettings.
